My Morrigan Project

I made Chocolate Covered Coffee Beans in honor of Morrigan. Wars have been fought over chocolate and coffee, fitting of her status as a Goddess of War. Chocolate is an aphrodisiac, appropriate for love. And what is more magical than taking one or two things and completely transforming them (such as melting the chocolate)?

I'm using the following recipe:

* 1/3 cup roasted coffee beans
* 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler until liquid and smooth. Drop in a handful of beans, and stir them around. Scoop them out with a spoon, and set them out on waxed paper. Keep them separate. Continue until all the beans are covered. They will harden overnight, or if you are in a hurry, you can freeze them for about half an hour. Once hard, they won't stick together and can be stored in any air-tight container.
